The FSB and Basel Committee on Banking Supervision said there would be four primary capital buckets that such institutions would be placed into, depending on their size, riskiness and interconnectedness. Some firms would be required to hold an additional 1 percent in capital, while others would have to hold 1.5 percent, 2 percent or 2.5 percent. There also would be a fifth bucket of 3.5 percent for institutions that increased their potential threat to the global economy, but no firm currently qualifies for that added capital requirement.
The G-SIFI list will be updated every November, while the methodology used to define such firms will be reviewed every three years. The FSB and the Basel Committee developed the list based on size, complexity, the extent of cross-border activities, and the degree of interconnectedness with the rest of the financial system.
